Top 10 global pollution

International environmental groups Blacksmith Institute (US based) and Green Cross Switzerland issued the top ten worst pollution problems in the world. They said these pollutions are the main contributing factor to death and disability in the world.

“Our goal with the 2008 report is to increase awareness of the severe toll that pollution takes on human health and inspire the international community to act,” said Richard Fuller, founder of Blacksmith Institute. “Remediation is both possible and cost-effective. Clean air, water and soil are human rights.”

Here are the top 10 global pollution in no particular order:
Indoor air pollution
Urban air quality
Untreated sewage
